Kimono Love

Kimono Love

Just like western fashion is making its way further into the eastern hemisphere, it appears that parts of Asian fashion are becoming popular in the west. One example being kimonos. More and more people appear to be wearing kimonos during the summer months – and rocking them!

I’m definitely fond of the kimono trend and have completely got on board with it and embraced it. They are honestly just so practical. They go well with everything. From shorts to jeans as well as over a bikini at the beach. Not only are they stylish but act as a little cardigan if it’s too warm to crack out the winter woollies.

A kimono can create lots of softness within an outfit too. You can whip it on over a pair of trousers and a shirt to give an almost flowy appearance to an otherwise structured outfit. It allows you to create many different shapes with an outfit that go beyond your normal shapes and textures. This is what makes them so versatile and easy to style.

I picked up my kimono from New Look last year and I feel like so many girls bought it because it is so pretty!! Although its obviously sold out now you can find one very similar and equally as nice from missguided. 

I usually style my kimono with a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt. If you didn’t already know my current favourite jeans are from Miss Selfridge they are literally so comfy its unreal!! As for my t-shirt, I really like this one as its very thick and good quality, it has a nice cut on my neck  and is very flattering.

  10. I guess when I think of a kimono I’m thinking of the traditional one in Japan. What you’re wearing is definitely cute but more like a shawl, at least to me. It’s nice that it is light and a breathable fabric. (:
